Went for a hike in Pictured Rocks yesterday. One thing is for sure. It's skeeter season. Since we live closer to the east side of the park, that's where I get to more frequently. You can see it all here, lighthouses included. It's amazing the diversity of natural features in that park, from the waterfalls and lakes to the huge sandstone cliffs, to the amazing dunes and pristine beaches that stretch for miles. The early spring wildflowers are at their peak and the trilliums are starting to turn pink. Miners beach is a very scenic place. The falls at the east end of the beach have a really neat sandstone texturing at the base of it, in which a lot of new sand has built up this year, covering a lot of this layered sandstone.
Pictured Rocks waterfall- anyone know if this falls has a name?
One of my fav hiking trails in the park also starts at this location and gets to the top of the huge sandstone cliffs relatively quickly. It's a place of solitude to be sure, but the initial hike up the big hill gets your heart pumping.
